Radnor Primary School

Radnor Uni

Radnor Uni is our innovative approach to increasing the range of experiences that pupils at the school can access.

Every term, for six weeks, all pupils in years 1-6 make choices and enrol on courses that they follow for six weeks.

Pupils are grouped in year groups - Years 1&2, 3&4 and 5&6 - and there are typically 10 to 20 pupils on each course. 

Courses are run by teachers, teaching assistants and community partners (including parents and local arts organisations) and aim to meet the four purposes of the new Curriculum for Wales, to produce:

1. Ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives

2. Enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work

3. Ethical, informed citizens who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world

4. Healthy, confident individuals who are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society


Radnor Uni is extremely popular with both pupils and parents and examples of courses that have been run are:
